Vanessa has been wonderful to work with! After a bad experience with another paralegal, I came across with Vanessa on Thumbtack, and she has been amazing, very knowledgeable, she actually took the time to understand exactly what documents I needed and what needed to be filled, is so refreshing to find someone who goes above and beyond to make sure things are done right! Thank you again Vanessa

Dylan L. was supposed to "fix" the pleadings and cause of actions for two civil lawsuits. I was the plaintiff in pro per with really good cases. What he created and filed instead, didn't survive demurrers and various other motions and challenges. Both lawsuits went down the drain pretty quickly and very harshly and super sadly, mostly merely because Dylan is a huge procrastinator, the biggest I have ever encountered, and didn't care about my cases anymore and didn't care about any deadlines imposed by the judges which also makes him dangerously cocky when it comes to legal documents preparation. Dylan will constantly tell you that he will do something by a certain date and at a certain time but he will never do it. He won't keep his word. He already charged me almost $1700 so I expected him to treat me better than this. I am now even responsible for the defendant's attorney fees which would make anyone go bankrupt. Your average credit card won't pay for a defendant's attorney fees. Even when I was miraculously given not 1, not 2, but 3 full months of extra time to amend and edit one case, Dylan didn't care at all and did let my case be negatively impacted by his negligence and delays, and lack of care for my cases. All of his other cases were always more important than mine. He was constantly savings some kids from the system with custody battles. So you would feel guilty complaining about his delays and his failure to deliver. I gave him a million chances to redeem himself and fix his mistakes. I even offered to bring in someone else to help out but he would go nuts and then even when he was drowning so badly he will still tell you he needs to be the "lead" paralegal. Nonsense really. Procrastinator, negligent, cocky, unreliable, and also very selfish. He really fooled me for a very long time. It took me many months to realize that he is no different from your typical crook who will take your money and then leave you high and dry as soon as things get complicated, even if he charged you an amount of money that included amendments and adjustments which he is responsible for no matter what. That is the quality of his work. If the causes of actions are poorly written then the demurrer will be sustained. If the judge will miraculously give you the opportunity to amend you should be on it right away and not procrastinate so badly and not act like you shouldn't do the job you were paid for. Or at least, give me the heads up and let me hire someone else when it's not too late when there is still time. Dylan L. won't give you that courtesy. He will act offended and he will tell you things like you "lost the privilege" to be treated fairly. There is a level of cruelty and spitefulness in everything he put me through and in how he decided to treat me and my cases. Which is what hurts the most. Right now he won't even provide detailed itemized invoices for every single charge on my card, so I don't even know what he really charged me for, what specific services and he thinks it's okay to ignore me indefinitely. So mean and so unprofessional. If he was a lawyer I would have already filed a State Bar Complaint because this is typical unethical behavior, to purposedly ignore a client who had trusted you and who has been paying you so much money with so many sacrifices and yet so promptly and so quickly without any delay. The same courtesy should have been provided. Services should have been prompt and not constantly delayed and procrastinated and should have been high quality or at least fixed right away and without hesitation. Trusting Dylan L. was the biggest disappointment of my life since I hired him. I blame exclusively him for all the legal disasters he created with his complete lack of interest in my cases and lack of moral and professional responsability. He should have refunded me and tell me he couldn't help me anymore and find someone else to help me with my cases. Don't make my mistakes. Never trust anyone you hire on Thumbtack to the point that you think wow, this person is your friend and he really cares about you. He will never harm you. He will never do you any wrong. He will never let you down. No such thing. No such luck.
